After the meeting registrants are invited to join the organisers and invited speakers for an informal dinner at one of our local restaurants. Unfortunately registrants will have to bear the cost of the dinner themselves, but the venues are reasonably priced and a variety of food styles can be found.
The DANDIS satellite to the ANS Annual Scientific Meeting is one of only two major Australian annual meetings focused on neurodegeneration research. This intimate meeting is an ideal venue for students and early career researchers to showcase their work to international experts in the field. This year will feature innovative "flash presentations" for ECRs.
This year we will feature a "flash presentations" session, specifically aimed at Early Career researchers, where poster presenter has one powerpoint slide and two minutes to present their research. This fast and furious (and often humorous) format (like the two minute thesis) gives every presenter an opportunity to showcase their work in a friendly atmosphere.
"Animal models have enhanced our understanding of the molecular and cellular mechanisms (often in the context of ageing) that contribute to various neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Frontotemporal dementia and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
The goal of this meeting is to showcase the latest research from a wide range of models (e.g. C. elegans, Drosophila, Zebrafish and Mouse) and how the knowledge acquired from animal models can inform the development of novel therapeutic strategies for these devastating diseases now and into the future."
As well as the main theme, participants are invited to submit abstracts on any aspect of aging and neurodegeneration.
Both oral and "flash presentations" presentations are available. We particularly encourage students and early career researchers to present. Abstract submission will be open until November 22, abstracts cannot be accepted unless the presenter is registered for the DANDIS satellite. Participants are invited to submit abstracts on any aspect of aging and neurodegeneration, although abstracts relating to the main theme are encouraged. Instructions on abstract preparation and a word template for the abstract are here. The abstract file must be given a meaningful title to distinguish it from all other abstracts. The title must be of the form presentername_oral_abstract.doc or presentername_poster_abstract.doc
Email the abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org . Clearly indicate if the abstract is to be considered for oral, "flash" or either presentation.-->
